A tale of shipwreck, heartbreak and redemption comes to the Windsong Pavilion, Sunday 2 July 2017, 12.30pm
Founder of Bell Shakespeare, John Bell, and internationally acclaimed pianist, Simon Tedeschi - two of Australia’s great storytellers - bring their unique performance of Enoch Arden to the Four Winds Windsong Pavilion, as part of James Crabb, Four Winds Artistic Director's, Windsong Series.
This epic melodrama, composed by Richard Strauss to the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s 1864 poem ‘Enoch Arden’, will be performed in words and music. "A tragic, tempestuous, romantic tale accompanied by the music of a genius. Half chamber music, half theatre." says Simon Tedeschi.
The historic and artistic value of pairing poetry with classical music is something that both performers are eager to share with audiences as they tour around Australia. "Audiences can expect a moving and dramatic tale of shipwreck, loss and redemption--- very satisfying theatre" says John Bell.
